Images from 'Marie-Antoinette' by Sofia Copella and Vogue

I've always loved history and in particular the French Revolution and France's Royal family. The Royal Family from Louis XIV and the construction of Versaille to Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette are really exciting figures, i've read a lot of biographies on Marie-Anotinette and as glamourous as her life was it was marked by sadness. Marie-Antoinette left her home at a very young age to move to France, where she was married to a man that wasn't interested in her, she led a court that oozed glamour and mischief. Her youthful and frivolous nature is addictive, i want to insight this in my final collection. I feel an atmosphere to a collection is vital it needs to evoke emotion in order to be successful.
